Tips for Air Frying Frozen Sweet Potato Fries

  • Make sure they’re completely frozen for best results. If you let them thaw and get too soft, they will break and become mushy.
  • Lay the frozen sweet potato fries in a single layer. Don’t pile them on too high because they won’t cook evenly. It’s better to cook in smaller batches. 2 layers deep is the max you’ll want to cook them for best results.
  • Sprinkle some seasonings on afterwards: garlic salt, garlic power, onion salt, onion powder, everything but bagel seasoning. Even some shredded cheese is fantastic.
  • Add your favorite dip options. There’s so many awesome possibilities.
  • Serve with your favorite sandwich or burger. These are also awesome as a snack.

  1. No Oil Necessary. Cook Fries Frozen – Do not thaw first.
  2. Shake several times for even cooking & Don’t overcrowd fryer basket.
  3. If cooking in multiple batches, the first batch will take longer to cook if Air Fryer is not already pre-heated.
  4. Recipes were cooked in 3-4 qt air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the recipe might cook quicker so adjust cooking time. 
  5. Remember to set a timer to shake/flip/toss the food as directed in recipe.

If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).
